Wish List: Daniella from Dress, Design & Decor

I am very excited to welcome our final Guest blogger in the Wish List series Daniella from Dress, Design & Decor.  Her Blog always makes me so happy - it is so feminine and it is just down right beautiful!

Hello! Daniella here from Dress, Design & Decor. So happy to be here on Greige today sharing a few of my favorites things I'd love for Christmas, and a few things perfect for others on your list...

1. Kate Spade iPhone cover - How could you not be charmed by this adorable "rotary phone" cover for your iPhone? It's a perfect sweet & simple gift for one of your best girlfriends!

2. Archive Leather Boot - I love these riding boots from Madewell. I am in desperate need of a black boot, and I’m always on the lookout for the perfect riding style that's not too wide or clunky looking. They're classic and will last you a lifetime. 

3. Flannel PJ’s - J.Crew and I have a problem. Mostly it's because they keep making pretty things and I’d like to buy them out. Most recently I’ve been coveting these classic plaid pjs in the softest flannel. Perfect for Christmas morning don't you think?

4. Chloé Perfume - I've been lusting after Chloé parfum for quite some time and I’m thinking I should pick up a pretty bottle of my own while the Christmas sales are on (if no one buys it for me first that is, lol).

5. Lilas Diptyque Candle - I absolutely love this candle with it's beautiful lilac scent. It reminds me of Spring and all things French.

6. Stadium Boulevard Trench - Love this classic piece, but in a warmer fabric for the Winter season, especially in the perfect shade of sandstone.

7. J.Crew Bracelets - J.Crew has SO many gorgeous bracelets that's it's hard to possibly pick just one! Crystal, pearls, silver, or gold... so many pretty choices and a perfect precious gift.

8. Mini Shopaholic - All of Sophie Kinsella's Shopaholic books are such fun reads, so I was super excited to hear she has another book out!

9. Pretty Pieces from Aerie - American Eagle's sister store Aerie is seriously the best place for pretty little girly pieces from pjs to the softest sweaters! I never really thought about Aerie till I wandered in a year or two ago, and now I love seeing what's new every time I wander by.

10. Dancing Dots Cardigan - I've been after this Madewell cardigan for a while now. Grey goes with everything, and the silver dots add a little bit of girly fun!

Wish List: Donna from A Perfect Gray

It is so nice to find a friend who's interests are so similar!!  Please join me in welcoming Donna from A Perfect Gray who is sharing her lovely holiday wish list with us...

Hello Greige fans, it's Donna from A Perfect Gray! I think of myself as Greige's lil' sis (only because she's been blogging longer). I'm all about decor, antiques, and art, and I'm forever searching for that perfect shade of gray. Today, I'm delighted to share my personal Christmas wish list with you....

I adore this antique gold-plated brass cuff by Zara Terez. It's called "The Met". Wouldn't it be awesome with a crisp white tailored shirt and jeans? Santa baby, you know I'd look good in this....

This yummy bronze bench by Nate Berkus. Perfect for a vanity seat and that bronze velvet is my favorite color companion to gray.
A Linoleum Block Print by Rob Delamater. Check out his prints and monotypes on Lost Art Salon, a fabulous - and affordable - art resource.
I used to make weekly trips to my local library to drool on study this fantastic book - until it disappeared one day. I really need my very own copy of Billy Baldwin Decorates. You do, too.
A python tray from Zhush, the perfect thing to mix in with antique and vintage pieces for little sass.
I'm a lover of collage! Isn't this snappy little jacket from Paste just wonderful? Denise's line of fashion collages would look awesome in a dressing room....I just wish I had one.
A white cow hide rug. No link here, because I don't know a source for reasonably priced white hides...but I'd be all over this rug if I did...
This gray and white pillow from My Sparrow, in Barbara Berry's Poetical fabric. A 'perfect' color!

And last, but by no means least:  Jamie Cullum. Not a CD. Not a video. I want Jamie Cullum. With piano in tow. Singing 'Photograph'. To me. In person. 'Cause this year? I've been really, really good.

Wish List: Sarah from Haute Design

I am very excited to welcome Sarah from Haute Design here on greige!  Sarah always has the most inspiring posts that temp me with fashion, interiors and all kinds of goodies!!

Hello, this is Sarah from Haute Design. For those who are not familiar with my blog, I share a wide range of people, places and things—from incredible, sprawling countryside homes, to chic street style in Paris, to unique vintage packaging. I am thrilled to be here today, sharing some lovely things that I have come across, that I would certainly add to my Christmas list, but are also some things I would love to give. I selected a range of items, from very affordable pieces for under $20, to more luxurious gifts. Most are available worldwide for your shopping consideration.


Christmastime is so magical, and it is especially fun putting beautiful gifts together for those you love. I personally always look for a theme when it comes to gift giving—no matter how large or small a gift may be. Even something as small as dainty hair pins contained in a chic box can be a special gift for your kind neighbour, who is always sending over baking, and who is really more like family. So grab a little notebook (I always keep a mini notebook for gift planning) and take down anything that catches your eye...

01 Chocolate Fondue Pots: A lovely gift for a hostess. These chic stoneware pots, available in milk and dark chocolate, warm quickly and easily and are delicious with fresh fruit.

02 Les Exclusifs de Chanel, Beige: An intense powdery floral of natural elegance and grace. Created by CHANEL Master Perfumer Jacques Polge in 2008, a blend of new white petals and yellow gold flowers are highlighted by hints of honey that reveal its discreet sensuality—for the lady of glamour in your life.

03 Lavender–filled postcard sachets: These lovely vintage postcard sachets are pretty and sure to please. Bundle two together and tie with a ribbon, and/or give them with a luxurious robe.

04 Voluspa Maison Noir Ambre Lumiere Votive Candle in Cosmetic Jar: An amazing scent placed in a very glamorous jar. This candle is the perfect little hostess gift, and a personal favorite scent.

05 Estate Jewelry Box, Cameo: Place a necklace, chocolates, or even a lovely note inside for a surprise. This cameo box is so multi–useful and completely charming.

06 All That Remains Bobbies: Place these pins in the box shown above or pair them up with a great book. Perfect for celebrations or... just because.

07 The Swing Coat: An original piece of Fifi Lapin for the stylish lady in your life. All Fifi Lapin purchases come with a Fifi collectors card.

08 Metal Key Holder: Ladurée, the famous house of Parisian cake store, collaborated with the Japanese brand Mark's to present this collection of key holders. Choose from a cat, dog or rabbit.

09 Ice block bowl: Artistically unique, this chic bowl is a wonderful statement piece. Fill with something special or gift it by itself. (There are also vases available in the same collection)

10 Faux Fur Tippet: An on–trend, retro-inspired faux fur tippet makes a sophisticated topper for any evening ensemble, and most especially, your favorite LBD.

Wish List : Lisa from The Lisa Porter Collection

A big Thank you to Lisa for being a part of our Wish list guest series!  Lisa was one of the first people to welcome me and My Sparrow to the world of the blog!

It's the most wonderful time of the year

to be a blogger and I want thank one of my

SoCal friends, Christina Fluegge, for inviting me

to be her guest at greige!

I just love Christina's stylish responsibility,

which makes greige design and My Sparrow two

of my favorite places to land.

Christina inquired about my holiday wish list

and asked if I would share it with all of you.

Absolutely, here is a list of just a few of

my favorite things to give & to receive.

Thanks again Christina, this was fun!

xo, Lisa

Let's go to iomoi! Ok!

As I mentioned last week, iomoi makes sending

your latest & greatest emails newsworthy events

when you use your own custom designed


Click on the monkeys & they will show you

the way to design a free sample for yourself!

And to keep the art of  handwritten notes

alive and well, just look, iomoi offers the best

selection of stocking stuffers  around! 

Back to emails for just a second...

How much fun would it be to send

  snazzy e-stationary on a

Way fun!

This gal looks like a happy blogger!

To learn more about the amazing things

that you can do on one of these,

check it all out at

How sweet it is ...

that these two are still

making beautiful music together!

Carole King & James Taylor

are still singing the songs we loved back then

& these days they sound better than ever!

Do you love the scent of a fresh cut privet...

A privet candle from

fills the air with that crisp green earthy scent

I crave on the coldest days of winter.

Speaking of earthy, the day I discovered

My Sparrow, was the day

I fell in love with Henry!

The Henry Woven Bench from My Sparrow is all about comfort and bringing things into your life & home that make you smile.

Smile & look fresh as a flower in a suit or t-shirt & jeans sporting a hand-stitched bloom on your lapel from

Each bloom Emerson makes is one of a kind, varied, and has it's own unique character and soul.

Kind of a flower soul mate! 

Speaking of flowers...

Indulge yourself with the scent of clementine leaves sparkling in the morning dew

above a heart of orange blossom

and water lily with the

I don't know about you, but during the holidays I actually look forward to spending time in the kitchen.

It's where everyone loves to gather & I love reading old family recipes even though I know them by heart. So why not wear something pretty while I whip up something gourmet!

Ashley over at Ice Milk Aprons has designed

a gourmet line of heirloom aprons

that will keep this hostess looking

crisp and pulled together.

  All of Ashley's ideas make for a meaningful

gift giving experience!

Now, let me ask you, do you know how much

 I love bicycles?

I've had my favorite beach cruiser from our California days forever. I'm not selling it...way to sentimental. 

However, I'm thinking that my cruising days are behind me and that I would do swell on this Classic Ladies 3-speed from Schwinn . It's a beauty! 

And last but certainly not least...

Planting a tree

is a beautiful way to honor someone!

is a delightful farm that specializes in growing trees that can be given as a gift and planted to honor a special friend or family member.

A tree or seedling suited for a special teacher comes beautifully wrapped and is the perfect way to say thank you for helping our children to grow & learn.

A living tree symbolizes strength and endurance

as these kinds of gift have the potential

to last centuries.

So... there you have it my friends,

the makings for an enjoyable holiday season.

Start your day on a bike ride with your kids.

  Around the block or through the park,

just get outside and play!

Send a festive invitation to friends on your ipad

using your e-stationary. Fill your home with music

from James Taylor & Carole King

and fill the air with the scent

of a fresh-cut privet. As you prepare

to greet your guests, put a dab of orange blossom

behind each ear

and a beautiful flower on your lapel.

Tie on an heirloom apron

& Serve a gourmet dinner in the kitchen

that everyone will remember.

Then sit back

and relax with Henry & friends. You deserve it!

Sounds to me like a

 lovely way to celebrate

the the holidays.

XO Lisa
